Moto_X_Style_Black_Front_Back

Motorola has taken the veil off three new handsets this morning, the Moto G, Moto X Play, and the Moto X Style. All three devices look quite impressive, but the X Style, in particular, stands out at the top of the line.

For those in the U.S., the Motorola X Style will also be offered as a Pure Edition. As you’d expect, that means a dev-friendly option that you can tweak to your hearts desire. Even more exciting, Motorola claims that the device will support LTE on any carrier, with the ability to switch between them if you so wish. That doesn’t just mean going from AT&T to T-Mobile, or from one of the MVNOs based on either of those networks. Reportedly the phone will also work with Sprint and Verizon! Of course that’s hinging on the fact that the carriers will play nicely when it comes to activating, which only time will tell how that goes.

Aside from an unlockable bootloader and all the frequencies needed to play nicely on all US carriers, this is the same handset as the X Style. And while we don’t know the official pricing of the X Style just yet, the Moto X Pure Edition is said to sell for just $399 unlocked. That’s pretty damn impressive considering what you get. For more details on the X Style, you’ll want to head here.
